The movie details the struggles of the new parents and unique challenges of being part of the royal family, which ultimately led Harry (Jordan Dean) and Meghan (Sydney Morton) to give up their royal ties to forge a new life on their own terms."

Lifetime dropped a 30-second-long teaser in July 2021, which clocked in massive views along with scathing comments. While most cringed, some thought it will only fuel the fire. "This shouldn’t have been produced. Talk about adding fuel to the fire," one fan commented on the network's official Instagram page, while another pointed out: "Wow! This movie isn’t going to make things better for the two brothers! So sad." A third wrote: "This is laughable. Way to make a bad situation worse. Good job."
